BEN FM to Carry 2020-2021 Villanova Football and Basketball

Beasley Media Group announces all Villanova Football and Basketball games for the 2020-2021 season will be carried on 95.7 BEN FM in Philadelphia.

The games have been heard in recent years on 610 ESPN and WTEL-AM. Under the new one-year deal, the station will air the entire Villanova Basketball Season beginning in November (details to be announced in the upcoming weeks).

Villanova Football, the 2009 NCAA FCS champion and 13-time NCAA playoff participant, is led by fourth-year coach Mark Ferrante.  Play-by-play announcer Ryan Fannon and analyst Kevin Reilly will call all the Wildcat action.

Villanova Basketball, the 2016 and 2018 NCAA national champion, is coached by Jay Wright. Ryan Fannon and Whitey Rigsby return for their 23rd season together as the voices of Wildcat basketball in 2020-21.

“After carrying Villanova on 610 ESPN in recent years, we’re excited to move Nova sports over to 95.7 BEN FM,” said Beasley Media Group Philadelphia Vice President and Market Manager Joe Bell. “Our motto at BEN is “Playing Anything We Feel Like” and we feel like playing some Villanova games!  It will be a great season for Villanova sports.”

“We’re thrilled to add Villanova Football and Basketball to 95.7 BEN FM this year,” said station Program Director Chuck Damico. It’s an honor to deliver these games to their passionate fans and alumni!”

“We are very excited to have a new flagship home for the Villanova Athletics radio broadcasts with 95.7 BEN FM,” said Drew Young Vice President and General Manager of Villanova Sports Properties. “The affiliation with BEN FM expands our reach in the Delaware Valley and gives the Nova Nation a prominent new home on the FM dial.”
